Over two decades after first being installed, The Kingspan KoolDuct System is continuing to deliver supreme thermal comfort, humidity control and ventilation performance at Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru (the National Library of Wales).
Situated in Aberystwyth, the library houses more than four million books, including a number of rare Welsh and Celtic volumes. Since first opening in 1911, the library has been regularly extended to provide more space for its collections.
The Kingspan KoolDuct System was fitted during the building’s construction in 1995. The HVAC specification took full advantage of the system’s slimline design, concealing it beneath corridor floors.
Furthermore, The Kingspan KoolDuct System also featured in the main ground floor plant room and as part of four risers, traveling from the lower ground floor to the fourth floor.
No issues and no relevant maintenance have ever been noted, with the ductwork and a recent inspection showing the system was in good condition and performing as expected.
As well as its proven longevity, The Kingspan KoolDuct System can also facilitate fast-track installation programmes.
Ductwork fabricated from The Kingspan KoolDuct System is also ideal for projects targeting lofty standards in energy efficiency. The system panels have been given the highest possible BRE Green Guide Summary Rating of A+, whilst their jointing system can reduce air–leakage rates to a fraction of those typical of rectangular sheet metal ductwork by achieving the best airtightness Class C and D.
